Definitely a good choice when staying near the San Jose airport. It's only about a five-minute shuttle ride (free) and the staff is very attentive to your needs. No hassle with check-in or check-out. Very good, affordable place to start or finish the trip

After checking in at the front desk, I walked over to the restaurant to find Eliana. She greeted me with largest smile and eager to explain the menu. It was suggested to me by Eliana that I should have the Margherita Pizza. I took her advise and was not disappointed. The pizza was really good and so were the Margaritas.... More

Such a nice hotel, rooms are big, quick check in, one of the best Marriotts I have been in for a while. Good place for over night or long stay, so close to the Airport. Shuttle every 30 min starting from 4:30 am. I do recommend it as one of a few options near the airport.

This hotel is very clean and located right next to the airport. They had an excellent breakfast and the room had all the things you need. Coffee maker, mini fridge, hair dryer, iron with ironing board, cable tv, etc. I would highly recommend this hotel if you are looking for a pleasant stay in San Jose.

The accommodation together with the hotel in general were good. As a place to get my head down for the night, myself and my two daughters enjoyed the comfortable beds, light breakfast and the smallish pool. It was convenient for the airport and as our first point of contact with Costa Rica, I cannot fault the hotel and the staff,... More
